If you are referring to the (console ?) windows then I can not copy anything of the diagonals with a mouse - does not work in those windows. If you are referring to copying the code text in question here from the work area in the IDE then code runs just fine as is and does so also without fail on my PC when copied to another work area in same IDE or to another IDE.

You can configure the Command prompt Window through the properties dialog box. This can be reached in the menu that is opened by left-clicking the icon in the left-top corner.
In the menu that opens choose "Properties".
In the "Options" tab, the "Quick Edit" mode allows you to use the mouse to cut and paste text to and from the command window. You can also choose insert or overwriting for editing by checking or unchecking "Insert Mode".
But in this configuration, the mouse does not longer work through the FreeBASIC keywords.

Thank you.

That just makes your problem that more interesting and strange though I can not duplicate it here...
